Unlike last week’s broadcast, this Monday’s edition of WWE RAW did not face competition from the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.
As the “RAW After WrestleMania,” it also benefited from the associated curiosity, hype and excitement.
Those factors, predictably, fueled a week-over-week ratings gain.
According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Monday’s WWE RAW drew a 1.46 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. It averaged 3.90 million in overall viewership.
Last week’s episode drew a 1.19 in the demo and 3.35 million in overall viewership.
This Monday’s broadcast, which was Monday’s #1 cable original in adults 18-49 and overall viewership, drew its best adults 18-49 rating in the 9PM hour (1.5). It posted its best viewership mark at 8PM (4.10 million).
The 10-11:11PM portion, predictably, drew the smallest numbers (1.40, 3.60 million) in both columns.
